So… I’ve been made an offer.
My aunt and uncle who live in Illinois called tonight and mom was telling them about college and stuff down here (I’m in Georgia.) My aunt, who is in college to be a nurse, told us about the college up there… and honestly, it sounds so much better than the one I am currently in.
Well, they offered to let me live with them and even offered to help me with getting grants and paying for things and all of that as long as I stay in college. Wow, is honestly all I can think. I was talking to my mom about a university up north in her home town that I wanted to go to, it’s not far from where my aunt and uncle live. Now, here’s the question… Should I do it?
On one hand, I could be in a new place. Meet new people and start a life all my own. No one up there knows my older siblings, I’m not expected to follow in anyone’s footsteps. I could finally be myself.
On the other… I’ve never been that far from my parents for so long. I’ve went all over the US, even to Canada, for a couple months before. But to a completely different state for gods know how long? It makes me kind of scared. Then there is also the fact of my three best (and only) friends down here… What would they think? I’d be leaving them…
I really want to start again, I wanna see new things… but I don’t wanna disappoint anyone either…
Anyways… To the people reading this.
Thank you for taking your time to read what is on my mind. I wish you all the best on your journey through this life… and as always, I’m here to listen if you ever need me. I love you, strangers.
